While it’s true that I have only ever worked a “9-5” corporate job for three months of my life, I did spend a lot of time in college, like 7 years. During my time in college, I spent long days on campus and got so sick of eating at the same sandwich shop every day, but bringing my lunch meant, basically the same thing, bringing a sandwich or salad, every day!

I was always on the look out for something new, delicious and nutritious that I could bring to school with me, and make in just a couple of minutes, only using a microwave.

Now, I may not be in school anymore, but there are still those days where I need a go-to 5 minute lunch option when I’m running around and too busy to cook anything, and that’s where my friends at Minute® Ready to Serve Rice and Chicken of the Sea come in!

Both Minute Ready To Serve Rice cups and Chicken of the Sea Salmon pouches are wholesome, delicious ways to spice up your lunch routine!

One of my favorite things about living in San Diego is the abundance of fresh seafood, right in my backyard!

I recently moved from downtown to the beach and just up the hill from my new home is a place I love called Catalina Offshore. They provide seafood for all of the best restaurants in San Diego, and they’re open to the public, so you can go in and buy the best stuff that restaurants use to serve at home in your own kitchen!

Blackened Red Snapper

As a food blogger I have an ongoing list of dishes I want to make.  Either I’ll see something on the Food Network, eat something out that I want to re-create or come up with a random idea to make crouton baskets (coming soon!) while taking a shower!  Inspiration for the blog comes from everywhere and the list keeps growing!

This particular dish has been on the list so long that I don’t even remember where the original inspiration came from!  It would be a safe bet to say the Food Network though. It’s always on at my house!  If it weren’t for sports, Guy Fieri and Next Food Network Star I would have absolutely no use for cable or a TV!

This dish finally came to fruition after making the delicious Squash Puppies.  What better reason than to go all out on a Cajun dinner complete with Blackened Snapper and Blackened Purple Potatoes.

Ingredients (serves 2-3)

  • 2 large red snapper fillets
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp oregano

Start by combining all of the seasonings together. Use a mortar and pestle (if available) to grind the thyme and oregano.

Next, spread the blackening mix generously over both sides of each fish.

Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to allow the seasoning to marinate in.

Next, fire up the grill to medium and place the fish on top.

Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Be sure to watch it because being a thin and delicate fish it cooks very quickly.

After it’s grilled to perfection, it’s ready to serve.  I topped mine with lemon butter. Simply melt 3 tbsp of butter then add to it the juice of 1 lemon. Voila! We also served my Mango Avocado Salsa on the side and it was amazing with the snapper!

Time to eat!

♣ If a member of your family doesn’t eat fish (my Mom) you can repeat the exact recipe using a chicken breast, just increase the cooking time on the grill. We made this for her and she loved it!
